Which means the top leading posts of all trade unions in the 'U.K.' earn *more* than these President-comrades of ours. How about the leadership of the TUs lower their wages to the level of these Presidents? They dare not to as their whole outlook is the 'left' trade union posture of UK imperialism, as its UK's imperialist looting that funds their salaries and they know it very well hence will not do anything strategically to oppose imperialism and they are totally fearful of anti-imperialist struggle and Black and Asian people who are loyal to it.

Bolivia's Evo Morales makes the least of any head of state in the Americas, while Mexico's Enrique Peña Nieto makes the most.
Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa delivered his last State of the Nation message on Tuesday, drawing attention his government’s stance on politicians' salaries — and noting he's one of the lowest-paid heads of state in the Americas.
Correa began his presidency by lowering his monthly salary by more than 50 percent to US$4,000. He has since frozen the maximum salary for president, vice president and ministers to US$6,957 a month.
"I pay all my expenses and my family's with my salary," said Correa. "Once I became president I reduced it to USD$4,000, that is 25 minimum wages, when my predecessors earned USD$9,800, which is more than 61 minimum wages."
Correa isn't the only modestly paid politician in the region, however.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro makes around USD$6,000, but Bolivia’s Evo Morales earns the least in Latin America by far, making USD$2,090 a month.
